Not only does the animation help the rural communities learn how to make devices that can help in their daily lives, but the animators and researchers took the time to adapt the users’ needs and the users’ language to the animation.
“This research aims to analyze the usage of 3D animation for transferring technology to the rural community as well remote area. The technology in this research is an appropriate technology consisting of solar drying cabinet (SDC) and sealer as well as reservoir. Meanwhile the community is people who live in Tanjung Batang Island, a small Island in Indonesia. Interview and observation are employed in data collection. The result shows that the content of the media has to be revised by using local terms as well as more focused and detailed. The conclusion is that 3D animation could be a prospective media for transferring technology to the rural community without assistance.”
